"Big Baboon" as written by and Jesse Budd....
If there was moonlight
On Piccadilly Circus
If the stars were shining down
What with the neon
You just couldn't tell
And I was similarly moonlit yet moonless
Starlit yet blind at the gates
Of my private Hell

So I started drinking to illuminate
That path that I'd lost
And soon my head was reeling
My emotions were unstable
As my head and my heart
Fought like brothers torn apart
I got Cained and completely un- Abel

I needed starlight
For a sense of true proportion
I needed the cool guiding light of the moon
I started drinking to uncover an angel
But what I found was a big baboon

Big baboon big baboon
Be my friend
Be my stars be my moon
Show me the way home to my angel
Show me how to get back soon

I said "I confess I'm a sickening mess
of a man in distress who's banished
from heart and from home
I don't know the way back
to pay back the life that I've squandered
I need to be shown
I'm longing for my true love
I'm longing for my bed
so won't you help me find the way out
from this maze in my head?"

And he said "You look like a stranger
who's lost on a dangerous night in a dangerous town
In your unspiritual climate
you need a primate like me to show you around
cause an angel's help would cost more
than your mean heart could pay
so follow my monkey arse down the underpass
and I'll show you the way."

"Don't try to look for the stars
you've fallen too far for their sparkle
to reach down and find you
just move right along
and groove to the song
of the monkey who's come to unblind you
cause I may not be an angel
but I know their favorite tunes
angels all dance to the music of of the big baboon."

Big baboon big baboon
Be my friend be my stars
Be my moon
Show me the way home to my angel
Show me how to get back soon

Are you bedazzled by your own
screaming Piccadilly madness?
And do you long for the cool
guiding light of the moon?
Then call on no one
So exalted as an angel
Just say the name of the big baboon

Big baboon big baboon
Be my friend be my stars
Be my moon
Show me the way home to my angel
Show me how to get back soon

Yea big baboon oh big baboon
Be my friend be my stars
Be my moon
Show me the way home to my angel
Show me how to get back soon
Oh big baboon big baboon
Big baboon
